So this is supposed to be a review of the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, a tablet that was designed explicitly and exclusively for the education market. Acer and Google say teachers really wanted a tablet form factor for the classroom, and they really don’t want to have to figure out how to manage an entirely new operating system when they’re already all in on Chrome OS. And so here it is, finally: an honest-to-goodness Chrome OS tablet.
Keep this article in mind when you read the next item I’m about to post.
Funny how the review about the software not being ready starts by talking about how crappy the hardware is… of course if the hardware is poor, the software experience will be poor.
From the review I get the impression a tablet with Chrome OS would be, *for my use case*, a better experience than Android. Of course, for my use case a full Linux desktop would be better. Speaking of that, I just installed a full Linux desktop (Fedora with MATE) on a 2in1 form factor device, and know what I’m talking.
